According to ESPN's Mike Sando, the Seahawks quietly extended GM John Schneider's contract through the 2016 season.

Per Sando, the deal was done "more than a year" ago. And it's well deserved. Entering just his fourth season on the job, Schneider has morphed Seattle from a 5-11 club under Jim Mora to an annually improving team under Pete Carroll. The Seahawks finished 11-5 in 2012 and came within two points of an NFC Championship Game berth. With the offseason additions of Percy Harvin, Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril, and Christine Michael, there's arguably no more talented roster in football as 2013 training camp approaches.

Seahawks signed offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell to a contract extension.

Bevell was a candidate for the Arizona head-coaching vacancy, but withdrew his name after re-upping in Seattle. The details of the extension are unknown, but it's a good keep after Seattle lost defensive coordinator Gus Bradley to the Jaguars. The Seahawks ranked No. 17 in total offense this season, but the unit really trended up after Russell Wilson found his stride.

Seahawks hired Darrell Bevell as offensive coordinator.

For a coach who managed a No. 23 ranking in yards and No. 29 mark in points as Vikings OC in 2010, it's a very good job. After working for Brad Childress, he'll also have more power than ever before as the true offensive boss under defensive-minded head coach Pete Carroll. Bevell's offenses did rank fifth and second, respectively, in Brett Favre's best season (2009), but ultimately his units were inconsistent in Minnesota. It's hard to say the Seahawks wouldn't have been better off keeping Jeremy Bates.

ESPN's John Clayton reports that the Seahawks have offered their offensive coordinator job to Darrell Bevell.

An agreement is expected to be reached at some point Thursday. Bevell was Minnesota's offensive coordinator for the past five seasons, but new coach Leslie Frazier decided to go in a different direction, hiring former Falcons assistant head coach/quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave. Bevell will replace Jeremy Bates, who led the Seahawks to the 28th-ranked offense this season.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Darrell Bevell has emerged as the favorite for the Seahawks' offensive coordinator job.

According to Schefter, Bevell has been Pete Carroll's preferred choice all along. Schefter also reports that former Miami (FL) offensive coordinator Mark Whipple has emerged as a candidate for the same position in Cleveland.

The Seahawks will formally interview Darrell Bevell for their offensive coordinator vacancy on Wednesday.

The incumbent OC in Minnesota, Bevell is in limbo as the Vikings continue to unsuccessfully search for an upgrade. Though Brett Favre's demise had plenty to do with it, Bevell engineered the 26th-ranked passing attack in 2010. Under Jeremy Bates, Seattle finished the regular season 19th overall.

NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports that Darrell Bevell is a candidate for the Seahawks' vacant offensive coordinator position.

The Seahawks originally wanted him for their QBs coach job, but they lost out on Josh McDaniels and may now have moved Bevell way up the totem pole. Seattle's new offensive coordinator is expected to focus on the passing game, with new line coach Tom Cable handling the run. Ravens QBs coach Jim Zorn and possibly Falcons QBs coach Bill Musgrave could be interviewed, as well.

Seahawks announced the hiring of former Raiders coach Tom Cable as assistant head coach/offensive line.

It's a sensible landing for Cable. He's a protege of offensive line guru Alex Gibbs, who retired as Seahawks offensive line coach just prior to the start of the 2010 season. Cable will keep Seattle's zone-blocking scheme intact.

Ravens QBs coach Jim Zorn is reportedly joining Josh McDaniels as a candidate for the Seahawks' offensive coordinator position.

Zorn is believed to be on the outs in Baltimore. There have been conflicting reports about his candidacy for the Browns' offensive coordinator job as well. Zorn is a local hero in Seattle and, as QBs coach, was instrumental in Matt Hasselbeck development. Zorn flunked as a play-caller with the Redskins, which has to be a concern for coach Pete Carroll.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen confirms that Josh McDaniels is a candidate to replace Jeremy Bates as Seattle's offensive coordinator.

We had already begun connecting the dots on this story. NFL Network's Michael Lombardi has been tight with both McDaniels and Bates in the past, so it's no coincidence that he was the first to have the story of Bates' firing. McDaniels could end up in the same division as the Rams after talks reportedly hit a snag Tuesday morning.

Seahawks fired offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates.

It's a shocking move -- and especially odd considering the timing. Bates schooled highly regarded Saints DC Gregg Williams in the Wild Card round playoff upset with a masterful game plan. The Seahawks offense was nothing special during the regular season, but Bates was working with a talent deficit at every offensive position. Reports are already surfacing that coach Pete Carroll will turn to Josh McDaniels. Bates may now be of interest to the Rams, Vikings, and Browns.

The Seahawks will reportedly hire former 49ers GM Scot McCloughan in a senior personnel position.

McCloughan and Seahawks GM John Schneider broke into the NFL together under Ron Wolf in Green Bay, so their ideologies are similar. McCloughan's acquisitions in the draft and free agency, for the most part, were impressive in San Francisco. His addition to Seattle's front office should work out well.

Seahawks hired Sherman Smith, formerly of the Redskins, as running backs coach.

Smith is an original Seahawk, leading the team in rushing for the first four years of the franchise. Though he was the offensive coordinator under former teammate Jim Zorn the past two seasons in D.C., he was not involved in the play-calling. The Seahawks backfield figures to have several new faces by the time OTAs roll around in May.

Newly hired Seahawks GM John Schneider admits that Pete Carroll has final authority on the personnel decisions.

It stands to reason, with Carroll being hired first and sitting in on GM interviews. Though Schneider will run the personnel department, he'll have to hash out all decisions with Carroll, who will have final say on player acquisitions.
